PRSUIT Sits Down with DJ/Producer HEYDER

We don’t normally post music related posts on PRSUIT but as our resident House/Trance addict, I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to profile 23 year old, up-and-coming DJ – Heyder. This DJ from Baku, Azerbaijan was recently propelled into the international spotlight when his mix of Dash Berlin’s “Shelter” was called out by Dash Berlin himself as being a great unofficial mix of his worlwide smash single. Check out some of this talented DJ’s songs below, but more importantly, be inspired by his journey and what drives him. We took 5 minutes of his time to chat…all the way from Azerbaijan.

You are a young producer! How long have you been producing music?

I have been in love with music since my early childhood when my family sent me to piano lessons. My piano teacher saw early success with me and I loved it so one lesson turned into two, into three and so on.

I have been producing for 7 years primarily with electro and trance. I have been writing original songs for three years


What artists do you admire?

I particularly admire Armin Van Buuren, Dash Berlin, ATB,Andrew Rayel, Mark Sixma, Ummet Ozcan, Above and Beyond, Paul Van Dyk, W&W,Shogun and the list goes on. 

What are your aspirations with your music?

I think my dream is that of every DJ – to have their tracks loved and shared by their fans. I want nothing more than to have tracks loved by fans and to have that connection with them. I hope to have this one day.

What advice would you give to young people like yourself who are chasing their dream?

If you want it to happen soon…make it happen soon!

What inspires you?

Seeing someone love and live what they do. I am constantly inspired by Armin’s world tour videos. He is writing history with his career and that inspires me.

What does trance music mean to you?

Trance music is the only destination for me. It is so hard to say with words. It is my world.

Tell me about your shelter remix – what inspired it ?

I have always loved Dash Berlin’s sound. I shared my demo with him on Facebook and Instagram and he messaged me back!
